Luka Modric has rejected talk of a possible move to Barcelona but insisting his heart is with Tottenham.
Modric’s quotes will warm the hearts of Spurs fans, the Croatian midfielder was fantastic against against Inter Milan on Tuesday night and loves life at the Lane.
“Me going to Barcelona? Yes, I really hope that, but only as a Tottenham player in the next round of the Champions League,” he joked in an interview with SportskeNovosti.
“Let’s be serious. All this is just so-called exclusive rumours, but I don’t know who really needs them. Are they funny? Yes, they are very funny for me.
“But of course, it is always nice to see your name being linked with such a club as Barcelona, but one has to keep their feet on the ground.
“At the end of the day it’s just rumours without any foundation. And I really don’t want to talk about all this anymore. Since I moved here newspapers are always talking about me leaving for somewhere else.
“First it was Chelsea, then Inter Milan and also Manchester United, now it is Barcelona. But the only truth is that I just recently signed a new contract with Tottenham.
“London is such a great place and at White Hart Lane I feel just like home. I know that the fans are happy with me, I have all the support I need to develop even more.
“I can make my football dreams come true with Tottenham and that is why all my thoughts and also my future is with this club.”
